New Moon in Taurus: May 2019
Blessed be for the New Moon in Taurus! Taurus is a very Earthy sign that loves to appreciate the sensual pleasures of life. All that is comforting, beautiful and brings about stability is ruled by the mighty Taurus. The stability of this new moon, however, is getting shaken up by creative and change-loving Uranus, who is also moving through the sign of Taurus. New Moon and Uranus in Taurus are asking us to take stock of the abundance that we’ve accumulated thus far. Are there some things that you’ve worked really hard for, some things that you’re proud of, some things that you absolutely cherish? That’s fantastic! Celebrate those things and the work you’ve done to bring abundance your way. Are there some things that you’ve been holding onto that are keeping you from evolving into the next phase of your ever growing and expanding self? Possibly some things that slipped through the cracks of your Spring cleaning? Holding on to things takes energy, whether they are physical goods or concepts/beliefs held within. It’s time to sacrifice at the altar of growth all of the things that keep you comfortable, but ultimately stagnant. The changes that we are creating space for now will be unfolding over the next seven years, so this isn’t just a minor shift. It’s a re-birthing of the self. I love what Chani Nicholas has to say on the subject: “Birthing anything requires that the container we do it through be shattered in some way. Don’t worry, it’s just a breakthrough.” Thankfully, this breakthrough has been graced with Neptune sextile to our New Moon, bringing lots of feel good and dream like inspiration, and Pluto and Saturn are trine to our New Moon, offering smooth sailing as long as we put in the necessary work.
